Rothiemurchus estates have established two wild camping areas in order to encourage responsible wild camping. The first designated area is at Loch an Eilein next to the car park. Grid Ref NH 897 084. It has a basic toilet block which is open during the summer but may close at other times. Campers should therefore prepare for there being no facilities. This area is open to tent campers and motorhomes.
The second area is for wild tent camping only and is located about 1/2km beyond Iron Bridge Grid Ref NH 933 074. Wild campers are welcome for one night only while back packing. There is no road to this location. The site is over three miles walk from the nearest car parking. There are no facilities and advice on responsible wild camping should be followed - see Weblink above.
Please treat both these areas with respect as they exist in an area of outstanding natural beauty and are situated in the midst of the Caledonian Pine Forest.
Under no circumstances should open fires or campfires be lit anywhere on the estate due to the significant fire risk to the forest. Cooking should only be undertaken on supervised stoves away from potential flammable materials.
Dogs are allowed at the sites however owners should prevent their dogs from disturbing ground nesting birds or other wildlife by keeping them on a lead and under close control at all times.
